Corsets are incredibly versatile garments which can be used in so many differing ways either as a traditional undergarment or as a modern visible fashion accessory. Our passion for these garments and our experience as fashion designers results in four different styles each available in five sizes to suit every woman for all occasions. All our based upon traditional styles deliberately to accentuate woman curves but carefully tailored to fit the shape of today’s woman.
This corset typically reduces your waist size by 5cm when laced correctly. It supports your breasts, looks good in all cup sizes and does not require shoulder straps. Two busk front options are available. A wide opening with the option of coiled steel bones as in the 1860s. Or an adventurous Spoon busk front to seductively curve over the tummy. A chemise should be worn under this corset to cover the tops of the breasts. Of course for the more modest occasion of your big day!
Made with either full or half cups made in a traditional way with the addition of breast gusset panels. Longer than the Victorian, it has a narrow busk front opening with nylon bones. This corset provides a close fitting torso without an emphasis on your waist. Suited to A & B cup sizes. Wearing a chemise underneath is only necessary with the half cup design.
This corset that is typical of most shapes from medieval through to Elizabethan and Regency times. Heavily boned with vertical, diagonal & horizontal channels. This level of detailing results in quite a work or art! Strapping the breasts to the rib cage, the torso to the waist and with shoulder straps. No front opening is historically correct and results in a perfect fit for a smaller breasted woman. Correct in every detail to the fashion of the time, this corset does not need any undergarments.
Our new design that finishes just under the bust. This corset is designed with a narrow front busk opening & elastic panels, reaching past the hips to the top of your legs. It will provide your figure with a longer length typical of the silhouette featured in the hit TV costume drama Downtown Abbey. Of course, it will need to be worn together with a bra or chemise!
The corset is an investment that pays off time after time. So versatile, it can be worn in many ways adding a new dimension to your existing wardrobe. A corset worn with tailored trousers, a white shirt and a suit jacket is fashionable office wear. The same corset worn with a wide neck t shirt and jeans is perfect for an evening BBQ. (Prices start at $450 for a corset and a complete outfit from $850 for sizes 8-18?) And in choosing a Bridal or Evening gown you may not be considering a corset, but it is worth trying on one just to see the impact this versatile garment can make to your figure. Wearing a corset is comfortable and your posture will improve, although you are restricted in some movements.
Wearing a corset is not recommended during pregnancy.
Our evening wear pieces are typically designed around the corset shape. They are made in beautiful fabrics and decorated on the outside to be noticed, for you to look elegant and be seductively fashionable. There are a number of corset shapes to choose from all based on vintage womanly shapes of the past. We select and recommend to you the corset to suit your figure from the many different sizes and styles we have. We then create the perfect gown by drawing for you a series of designs of coordinating garments taking your corset choice into an entire outfit. Together we can select from a large range of decadently beautiful fabrics we keep in stock, available in many different colours and designs.
